The Texas State Bobcats and Georgia Southern Eagles meet Saturday in college basketball action at the W.S. Hanner Fieldhouse.

The Texas State Bobcats look to stay hot while building on their five-game winning streak. The Texas State Bobcats are averaging 75.8 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 61.9 points on 38.8 percent shooting. Nijal Pearson is averaging 18.4 points and 1.6 assists while Tre'Larenz Nottingham is averaging 13.6 points and 3.3 rebounds. Alex Peacock is dishing 2.7 assists and Eric Terry is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Texas State Bobcats are shooting 37 percent from beyond the arc and 65.5 percent from the free throw line. The Texas State Bobcats are allowing 29 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.6 rebounds per game. The Texas State Bobcats have won seven of their last eight road games.

The Georgia Southern Eagles could use a win after splitting their last eight games. The Georgia Southern Eagles are averaging 85.4 points on 50.3 percent shooting and allowing 78.2 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Tookie Brown is averaging 17.1 points and 4.9 assists while Quan Jackson is averaging 16.2 points and 4.6 rebounds. Ike Smith is the third double-digit scorer and Isaiah Crawley is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The Georgia Southern Eagles are shooting 32.3 percent from beyond the arc and 66.7 percent from the free throw line. The Georgia Southern Eagles are allowing 33.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.9 rebounds per game. The Georgia Southern Eagles have split their last six home games.

The Bobcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Sun Belt and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Eagles are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Sun Belt and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 3-1-1 in Eagles last 5 home games. The under is 5-2 in Bobcats last 7 road games.

The Georgia Southern Eagles just went toe-to-toe with the Texas State Bobcats on the road a couple of weeks ago, losing by just three points. GSU should probably be favored here, but we're getting a free bucket with the better, more consistent team in Texas State. The Texas State Bobcats are 12-6 ATS on the season, 7-4 ATS on the road and are winning by an average of 9.8 points during their five-game winning streak. The Georgia Southern Eagles are so up and down and are just 1-5 ATS at home this season. There's value with getting a free bucket with Texas State. 

Pick:
Texas State +2
